About this property

Very private with an elevated tree-top outlook

If you are looking for trendy Inner City living, this spacious, single level, 65m2 of living unit is bigger than most & the full-length cedar framed windows and doors frame its private outlook into the mature trees siding Allara Street.

The popular 'Forum' development itself is surprisingly peaceful despite being located just a short walk from the heart of the City & an even shorter stroll from the picturesque Commonwealth Park and Lake Burley Griffin. Relax on your fully covered balcony, which enjoys an easterly aspect so there are no neighbours looking in. Enjoy a morning walk around the lake, then leave the car at home & walk to work or visit the Canberra Centre for some shopping or a lazy Sunday brunch.

The 'Forum' has many delights for you to make use of. Imagine enjoying a barbecue on the rooftop terrace & taking in the lights of the City & the lake views. If you are looking for a good workout, the fully equipped gym is at your disposal, complete with aerobic equipment, pin-loaded machines & free weights. The Canberra Olympic pool & gym is also located directly across the road if you want to get some laps in or just have some fun with mates.

Attention live in owners – want early access prior to settlement and a guaranteed move in date? Well good news, we can make that happen since the unit is vacant. Also if more flexibility is required in terms of a longer settlement, just tell us what you need and we will try to accommodate.

Attention investors – early access is also available to your property manager so tenants can view the unit and be pre signed up prior to settlement meaning you have no vacancy when you settle and an income stream from day 1.

Make sure to watch our detailed, walk through video prior to (and also after) your inspection, it's our 24/7 salesperson for you to get an excellent feel for the features and benefits of this apartment, the parking and storage as well as the buildings facilities. It's the most informative property video you will watch during your property search, but don't just take our word for it…

To get a copy of the digital brochure containing an explanation of our friendly sales campaign and the full contract, just send us an email from any of the portals noting your name, number and email and it will be automatically sent to you prior to your viewing.
